The autism spectrum is broad and diverse, and here at I CAN Network, we believe in supporting and empowering people from all across it, including those with greater support requirements.
Today, we’re highlighting the marvellous work of one such individual; Mr Tim Chan. If you haven’t heard of him, we highly recommend checking out his Ted Talk, which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Woy-XzC-UVs
Tim is non-verbal, and this has sadly led many people to underestimate and dismiss him. Yet while he may not be able to speak, Tim has an incredible way with words. He’s a poet, a published writer, and a living testament that just because someone cannot speak, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a great deal to tell us.
We’re very proud to work with Tim; his journey through life has been a true Odyssey, and his resilience, courage and determination personify our philosophy.
